Not far from our motel and a beautiful place to hike and have a picnic. The lake is gorgeous and a breath of fresh air.

“Fantastic outcroppings of boulders in the middle of Sylvan Lake.”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

Sylvan Lake is a small but beautiful lake in the higher elevations of Custer State Park. An easy trail surrounds the lake and has some of the most interesting views through the crevasses of the outcroppings of boulders in and surrounding the lake.
